something new to me, pclinuxos

Filed under
PCLOS

After much distro hopping I have settled for something new to me, pclinuxos. This was truly an out of the box experience.

I was quickly able to connect online via wifi unike previous distros which didn't recognize my Broadcom wireless card as quickly or as effortlessly as I would have liked. I am using the KDE version pclinuxos 2010 and I am loving it. It has some goodies installed that took me a while to download and get going with other distros.

What goodies am I referring to?
